You may be interested in what cell phones will look like, and, while there are experts who answer that question, the odds are, they won’t be 100% right.
And when you answer my question = What will your business look like in ten years? – you won’t get it 100% correct either. But that is a poor reason not to think about the answer.
Most all would agree this is an important question for corporate leadership to ask, and it clearly is a strategic leadership question. But the question applies to all of us as leaders.
If you aren’t thinking about, and envisioning where your organization and team are headed, they might not end up somewhere desirable. It is our job as leaders to ask this question because we are in the lead.
Regardless of our role this question, and the thinking that goes with it, is critical to successful leadership. Organizational success will follow with a clear picture of the future followed by outstanding and frequent leadership communication.
It is that simple and that difficult.
But it starts with the question.
And continues with action, based on your answers to the question.
